The Symposium on Control and Modeling of Biomedical Systems will be held 
on April 22-23, 2010 at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and 
Technology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  This two-day, 
single-track symposium will expose academic, clinical, and industrial 
researchers to key biomedical problems from the perspective of dynamic 
system control and modeling in an effort to initiate collaborations and 
investigate future research directions.  Interactive session abstracts, 
student travel grant applications, and registration are now being 
accepted at: http://biomedsym.beckman.illinois.edu/

Hosted by: The Beckman Institute and Coordinated Science Laboratory, 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Technical Co-sponsors:  IEEE Control Systems Society and ASME Dynamic 
Systems and Control Division

** Thanks to our sponsors, students are eligible for full reimbursement 
of registration fees (includes meals). Limited student travel grants are 
also available. **

Technical program will include the following sessions:
   * invited presentations by academic, clinical, and industrial 
   * an Interactive Session, where graduate students can present 
posters/videos and biomedical companies can highlight control and 
modeling technology used in their latest instruments and analyses,
   * and a panel session that includes clinical researchers to provide 
their perspective on the translational potential of the discussed research.

Topics will include:
   * brain machine interfaces,
   * motor neuroscience,
   * rehabilitation robotics,
   * epidemiology,
   * drug delivery,
   * genetics,
   * medical imaging,
   * physiology.

Important dates:
   * Travel grant applications deadline: March 22
   * Poster/Interactive session proposals due: March 22
   * Registration close: April 15
   * Scheduled activities: April 22-23
